Nice teaser my friend, looks like a painting. As Robin said, the street looks like it's coming nicely. I like to see the development of a city step by step, you've done it really well.
Can't wait to see more !

The State of Nesara: Update Four

Population: 206

Projects: Power Plant (Nesara Council)


The Nesara Power Plant was finally underway, just north of the town. The estimate of $1.2 million was slated as too high a cost for the plant, and it was finally confirmed as feasible at $850,000. Despite repeatedly being rejected, the Nesara Council finally got the approval from the federal government to fund half of the project. With construction underway (sub-contracted to Davidson Contracting Ltd.), expected commencement of operation was a short time away.


The new Cedar Power Plant site.


Elsewhere in town, Davidson Contracting Ltd. opened up their offices on Country Road just west of the James Brooks' residence. Danny Davidson, the owner, claimed it was the biggest step the company had taken since it began business, and also said he hoped to help the local economy by employing a further 12 people.

Cedar Market, owned and operated by Jim Calhoun, also opened up for business. Situated on Country Road, Calhoun's business was the second to open in Cedar. The average sales per day was $600, a number he hoped would improve as the town grew. Employing 3 other people, the total expenses per year was approximately $100,000, just about the amount the building he constructed cost him. Although in the current conditions it seemed like a big investment, Calhoun was banking on the growth of Cedar to start bringing in more customers.

Looks great, I'm really enjoying the story side of things here.  Which homes are those?  They look familiar, but I can't seem to identify them.

Beautiful forests and small towns.  Hard to go wrong.

It's been way too long, my friend.  I'm looking forward to seeing where you take Nesara.

Looks really great my friend ! This teaser is excellent, I like how the town is encircled by the forest ! I guess the power plant is growing, right ? It already looks bigger than last time..  :)

Take care,

The town and story are coming along very nicely.
It must have taken for ever to plant those tree just right.  I like how you added in just a few seasonals.
Great work, I wait patiently for the next update.

The State of Nesara: Update Five


Population: 355

Completed Projects: Cedar Power Plant (Nesara Council)

Developing Projects: N/A


The Cedar Power Plant was finally completed, and was fully operational. The steam plant was small by any standard, but more than capable of supporting Cedar's short term expected growth. Although that meant higher costs and utility bills for the residents, it also meant stable and capable power for the town, a fair exchange in everyone's eyes. The power plant also employed 43 workers, 4 of which were managers, becoming the largest employer in town.


The old diesel generator that used to power the town.


The new steam power plant about half a mile north of the center of Cedar.


Growth had begun to slow down after the latest batch of land was sold, with only a couple of houses under construction. Land was still being sold at the same price as before ($1,000 per 100 square meters). The Nesara Council was busy making roads, and although unpaved, was going to theoretically make more land purchasable now that they had road access.


I felt I need to replace the old Davidson offices, so now they look like this.



An aerial of Cedar.
